North Devon 'Turkey & Tinsel' based at Ilfracombe

North Devon 'Turkey & Tinsel' based at Ilfracombe





4 DAYS FROM £209


There are few places in Britain that can lay claim to such a beautiful combination of stunning landscapes as North Devon with its coastline of spectacular cliffs, secret coves and golden beaches together with a hinterland of wild moorland, sparkling rivers and lush rolling hills. Nestling between Exmoor National Park to the east and the golden surfing beaches to the west, the coastal town of Ilfracombe is the ‘jewel’ of the North Devon coast with its white washed houses, grand Victorian villas and terraces.


Our ‘Turkey & Tinsel’ festive break includes a welcoming cup of tea/coffee on arrival at the hotel, afternoon tea & biscuits each day, a Christmas gift from Santa and entertainment each evening.


Our base is once again the comfortable family run OSBORNE HOTEL which is situated close to the High Street and Tunnel Beaches. Features of the Osborne include a traditional restaurant, bar, lounge and ballroom with entertainment each evening. All of the simply furnished en suite bedrooms have tv, and hospitality tray. A passenger lift serves all floors.
